Review Entries for Day Wednesday, September 27, 2006

Further to my blog yesterday about the VML Exploit in Internet Explorer, Microsoft have released overnight (UK time) an out-of-band patch. Early news of the release was reported by Microsoft's Craig Gehre on the Microsoft Security Response Center Blog.

Microsoft clearly consider this vulnerability to be serious, since they rarely issue patches outside the normal monthly cycle.

Microsoft are taking advantage of the need to release MS06-055 by re-releasing MS06-049, which apparently needs some alterations.

I've recently noticed that the .NET Framework Version 3.0 (which is currently in the late beta stage) is unlikely to run on anything earlier than Windows XP SP2. The likely consequence of this is that some software developed over the next couple of years will not run on Windows 2000. This is probably early notice to business to move on from Windows 2000.

There seems to be a growing interest in the media of ransomware. Ransomware is malware (viruses and the like) that encrypts the victim's data so that they can't access it. The perpetrator then offers a ransom to recover it for them.
